TRESILLIAN SUPPORTING NSW FAMILIES
What is a Telehealth Consultation?
Telehealth Virtual Consultations to parents are appointments with Tresillian Nurses and Counsellors that can take place using the video technology available on your mobile phone, ipad, laptop or desktop computer.
How much does it cost?
Telehealth Virtual Consultations are a FREE service.
Who will I speak to on Telehealth?
Your first consultation will be with a Tresillian Nurse. At the end of your consultation, the Nurse may suggest you could benefit from another consultation with one of Tresillian’s Psychologists or Social Workers.
Why call on Tresillian?
Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming and exhausting. Add to that the stresses of self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it means parenting can be even more difficult. Tresillian can help you and your family during this challenging time with:
- Practical guidance and support on what you can do to help your baby sleep better
- Feeding your baby - Breastfeeding or bottlefeeding
- Working out baby’s sleep/feed/play daily rhythm or pattern
- Toddler behaviour
- Coping with twins or triplets
- Self-care – your own emotional health and wellbeing especially during COVID-19
How long is a Telehealth Consultation?
Depending on your needs, a Telehealth consultation could be from 1 – 1.5 hours.
How many Telehealth Consultations can I have?
This also depends on your needs. Some parents may only require 1-2 Telehealth consultations however we can provide additional sessions according to your needs.
